    Yeah, because it's Karl Hess' fault he came inside the arc too early.

    His modus operandi is simple: stealing the spotlight in any and every game he officiates, and making blatantly awful calls in huge situations. His style is so controlling and aesthetically depressing that we’re all compelled to notice the man in black and white. Now and again, he pulls off truly spectacular stunts. There was the incident in Raleigh, for instance, when he ejected N.C. State legends Tom Gugliotta and Chris Corchiani from the premises for heckling him. In that case, even the head of ACC officials admitted Hess was wrong.

    Louisville absolutely abused the Buckeyes in the first half, then the Bucks showed grit and perseverance in clawing their way back.

    Very proud of this team. They'll be just fine.

    Horrid shooting night, freshmen played like freshmen and the seniors played even worse.

    Was impressed how they fought back. That Louisville defense is nasty. This is a young team with a lot of learning to do, but they have time to do that- should be an exciting season.

    A loss is a loss but the way the team settled down and fought back in the second half was encouraging. Whatever nerves the kids had in the first half are gone now. Back home for 4 before heading to Chicago to take on the UNC Tar Heels. Looking forward to see if the Bucks can start faster in that one and grab a nice resume building victory.

    something that I noticed more often than not last night was that OSU was rarely in good box out position. Louisville always had the backside rebound position. I think 3 of Lovings fouls were on loose ball (rebound) pushes from behind because he was out of position. That will be something I think can be fixed with some hard work over a few practices. I thought Louisville did a nice job of moving the ball and getting the zone going side to side which creates some of those box out advantages they had, but still too many times our guys were just content to watch the shot go up instead of working inside to get board position.

    I also thought the nerves early cost them some easy points. Missed dunks, layups, and bunnies are hard to overcome when you play a defense the size and aggressive nature of Louisville. Good learning experience overall, great to see the fight in the team. I think you could really see some of the calls getting to the players which is another issue Matta will get cleaned up. Good calls, bad calls, missed calls are all gonna happen. Cannot overreact to those and let them get you out of your game which I think did happen last night.

    This is something you live with when you play zone. When a shot goes up you have to find a man and when that man is as active as Louisville's it spells trouble. Weak side rebounding is difficult against zones particularly when a wing or corner three goes up. You teach the offside defender to sit in the hole right in front of the basket when the balls goes deep to a side/corner. The one pass you invite is the skip pass over the defense.

    OSU rarely rebounds or boxes out well. There are some individual exceptions to this but it has been a consistent weakness. This is not a new development this season.
